    People that follow William Branham are focused on what he had to say. But why would I want to listen to him?

    True stories?

    If I wanted to hear someone's 'experiences', I would read biographies of people who told the truth about their lives. Even William Branham's biography fails to separate truth from fiction.

    Part of a special group?

    If I wanted to be in an exclusive club, I would join the 'Freemasons' or 'The Mystic Order of the Veiled Prophets of the Enchanted Realm'...or a hockey team.

    True doctrine?

    If I was interested in hearing about the church ages or seals, I would read Clarence Larkin's original writings on these subjects.

    Truth or fiction?

    If I wanted to hear fables of mystical clouds, bridges collapsing, and voices talking at rivers, I would read a fiction novel.

    Was he a prophet?

    If I wanted to hear someone exalt their 'prophet', I would join the Mormons or Ladder Day Saints.

    What did he say about women?

    If I wanted to see women forced to dress a certain way, I would become Islamic or Amish.

    What was his stand on racism?

    If I wanted to hear about superiority and racism, I would become part of the Ku Klux Klan.

    Why do his followers condemn me?

    If I wanted to hear people condemn others to Hell for leaving their religion, I would join a Cult.

    What should I do?

    Read the Word of God and trust the Lord to lead you into all Truth and guide you with His Spirit.

    No one who trusts in You will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others. Show me the right path O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You.[1]
